The way of the Ascidiacea.

Born as part of the fauna. A larva using its Ganglion for moving around, making choices, finding its way. The Ganglion consists of crossing and overlapping nerve fibers similar to the human peripheral nervous system. A brain-like knot of information.

The Ganglion will guide the Ascidiacea to a good place, a firm rock where it gets a solid grip on life. A place that provide what’s needed.
Once that place is found, on the bottom of the sea, the Ganglion is regressed in order to save energy. The Ascidiacea is then a part of the flora.

When the active animal have sorted out where to go in order to live a good life based on its personal needs, the brain regenerates and the larva turns into a plant. As if there’s a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away.

Tranquility is courage in repose.
